San Antonio Spurs Fantasy Spin
DeMar DeRozan led the way for the Spurs Monday vs. the Pistons, finishing the win with 26 points (12-of-21 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), seven rebounds, nine assists, two steals and two blocks in 34 minutes. Two days after scoring 12 points on 3-of-10 shooting from the field DeRozan bounced back in a big way Monday night in Detroit. At one point in the fourth quarter the All-Star guard made six consecutive shots, and this effort ends a run of four consecutive games in which he shot below 50% from the field. DeRozan is now shooting 47.4% from the field on the season while averaging 22.6 points per game.
Memphis Grizzlies Fantasy Spin
Dillon Brooks (toe) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Spurs with a sore right toe. He was out on Monday, as well, and he's also wearing a walking boot as a precaution. Despite Brooks' absence on Monday, Justin Holiday managed just four points on four free throws.
NBA Betting Trends
The Spurs are 15-5-1 against the spread in their last 21 games after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.
The Grizzlies are 3-13 against the number in their last 16 games playing on one day of rest.
The road team is 5-1-1 against the number in the last seven meetings between these two teams while the favorite is 5-2-1 ATS in the last eight games in this series. The Spurs have been profitable when playing the Grizzlies, going 5-2-1 at the betting window in their last eight games against Memphis. The Spurs are 11-1 against the spread in their last 12 games playing on only one day of rest, are 4-1-1 against the number in their last six road games and are 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 games overall. Given the Grizzlies’ struggles (0-6 ATS in their last six home games as well as being just 5-18 ATS in their last 23 games overall), the Spurs look like a safe road favorite here.
